Chicago’s offense has regressed

Last season, the Bears were one of the biggest surprises around the league. After winning just five games in 2017, they finished 12-4 and won the NFC North last year in their first season with Matt Nagy as their head coach.

A big reason behind Chicago’s turnaround in 2018 was due to the strides their offense was able to make. The Bears weren’t throwing up 50 points per game or anything like that last season, but Nagy was able to get the most out an offense that didn’t necessarily feature any real superstars.

This year has been a different story for Chicago’s offense. Compared to 2018, the Bears are currently averaging fewer points, passing yards, and rushing yards this season.

Even in their 31-15 win over the Redskins in Week 3, only 21 of Chicago’s total points came courtesy of their offense.

Whatever the Bears were able to do well on the offensive side of the ball in 2018 definitely hasn’t been working this season. Life isn’t going to get any easier for Chicago’s offense this week when they take on a talented Vikings defense.

Oh well.
